same as you do for any source code. Get it out of CVS. It is all the same source. -> cvs access link on the left hand side.

A tipp: The forum has a search-feature.
You could try to search the boards for the answers to your questions instead of creating 28094046 topics per day... :roll:

no, just take a little time to search before you ask that's all :)
in general most of the things you ask have been asked before.

I read that and when I am prompted for a password I press enter and I keep getting asked for a password until the process aborts because I don't have the correct password

I have read the cvs site

if it keeps asking you, then you have not done it correctly.

you must do it as 2 lines, just like this

cvs login

cvs -z3 co -P bzflag

make sure you use bzflag for the module name.

you will also probably want to add -r v2_0branch after the -P part, so you get the 2.0.x compatable code, not the 2.1.x code.

umm jeff while I have your attention will the 2.1.x be compatible with the 2.0.x server list and clients ?

and is there a makefile in the 2.1.x code for windows in the current download ?

as has been said in many other places here, no 2.1.x is NOT compatable with 2.0.x. And will be incompatble with itself as the protocll changes as new features are added.

if it was compatable it would still be 2.0.x. The version numbers do mean something.

Basicly compatable version have the same second number. We change that number when the code becomes incompatable.

2.1.x is development for 2.2.0, then next "big" version. What we have been doing with 2.0.2, 2.0.4, etcc. has just been making revisions of the 2.0.0 line. That is why they are are all 2.0.something

there is a nice big sicky post about what all the version numbers mean here

in the Game Releases and Versions forum.
